Amritsar, the land of The Golden Temple, a place that witnessed history unfold at every step, is one of the top tourist destinations of Punjab. It is situated in the Majha region and serves as the administrative centre of the Amritsar district.

It has enormous mythical and historical significance as the Sikhs' primary place of worship. This collection of mythologies includes the story of Amritsar's illustrious Dukh Bhanjani Beri— a revered tree standing tall within the Golden temple premises.

Devotees pay their respect to the tree if they want to bathe in the holy water. Visitors to the Golden Temple are under the impression that by doing so, they will be blessed by the sacred tree and be healed of their ailments.

All about Dukh Bhanjani Beri Amritsar

An ancient jujube tree known as the Dukh Bhanjani Beri Tree is revered in the Sikh culture and is said to have amazing healing powers. The tree is located in the Golden Temple complex on Amrit Sarovar's eastern side.

#Trivia: Dukh Bhanjani is a phrase that signifies "eradicator of suffering."

Sikhs hold great respect for this 400-year-old jujube tree. It is believed that the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak, took a nap while reciting Gurbani in utter devotion to Waheguru at this sacred location.

It is thought to have played a significant role in Guru Ram Das Ji, the fourth Sikh Guru, creating Amritsar.

While the Amrit Sarovar at the Golden Temple is not accessible to the general public, a tiny area near the Dukh Bhanjani Beri Tree is open to worshippers who want to take a dip in the sacred water.

#Note: You cannot enter the Gurudwara with socks without covering your head and wearing anything that exposes your body. You must be fully covered and cover your head when inside. The guards keep an eye out for anyone not following the temple rules.

History of Dukh Bhanjani Beri Amritsar

Rich landowner Duni Chand Khatri had five daughters. They were all talented and attractive. Duni Chand once questioned his daughters, "Tell me who feeds you." All four elder daughters immediately resonated that their father was taking care of their needs.

However, Rajni, the younger daughter, responded, "It is God who sustains all living things." Duni Chand was so furious after hearing this response that he wed Rajni to a leper. She married the leper and gave him her undivided attention.

At the time, Guru Ram Das Ji was building a new city in Amritsar. Rajni travelled to Amritsar carrying the leper. She joined the other believers and was responsible for preparing meals in the communal kitchen.

She left him to sit beneath a Ber tree one day. When her husband, the leper, was sitting on the bank of the pond, he noticed a pair of crows plunge into the water and fly away, their colour changing from black to white.

He decided to take a bath in the tank after observing this. He reached close to the pond and dove in. He was shocked to see himself hale and robust when he emerged because he was no longer a leper.

As a result of its ability to alleviate pain and afflictions, the tree under which the leper was reclining became known as Dukh Bhanjani Beri.

It is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Amritsar.

#Trivia: Whether winter or summer, the devotion of all the tourists and pilgrims visiting the Golden Temple is astounding. In peak winters, when we are afraid to even take off our jackets, people dip in the chilly pond water because of their absolute belief.
